He\'s just saying that there is no longer a pressing need at corner. Doesn\'t mean we won\'t draft one. Who knows?

We Aren't Targeting a CB in Round 1

Why the hell do people think we need a WR so damn bad? San Diego, they need WR help. Kansas City could use some WR\'s. Baltimore needs a WR. We don\'t. We have Joe Horn, and Jerome Pathon, and Donte Stallworth...our need for WR is very small and we can fill it in the 3rd with Colbert. Unless the unthinkable happens and Fitzgerald falls to us, there is no friggin way we should even think about taking a WR.

I am glad you aren\'t running our team. Anybody who watched us last year knows that we couldn\'t stop the run and that was the downfall of our team. We need a dominate MLB, not a guy who is going to sit 4th on our depth chart for a couple seasons.

We needed a CB before we cut Carter though... Although I like the fact that we managed to fill holes FA so to draft best athlete available as far as upgrading goes. I like Vilma and a lot but being there at 18 is going to be a stretch.

vilmas too little to stop the run. he can be kind of a glorified safety and play ok against the pass. but we aren\'t stopping the run with vilma. wr is a need, pathons a year from bein a cap cut, donta cant stay on the field and horns gettin old. after those three, everybody on the roster is a question mark. this is a great draft for wrs, stallworth wouldn\'t be in the top 7 of this group if he came out this year. we can get an elite player at wr where we are pickin from. vilma aint elite--less maybe we want to turn him into a SS.

Chuck has a girlfriend? What\'s her psi?

No clue. Some of the same people that are screaming that we need to select a WR in the 1st have also been screaming to give Stallworth one more year to develop. If it takes a receiver 3 years (which I firmly believe), normally, to get his legs in the NFL, Stallworth will be ready to step up this year, and Gardner next year. So, what are we going to do?

stallworth wouldn\'t be in the top 7
Really? I beg to differ.Top 3? Probably not, but he would be a top 5 selection, much less, a top 7. Big guy (not huge, but nice size for a receiver), projected with great hands, can jump and 4.2/40 speed? Yeah, those types are always falling to the second day- happens all the time. :P

6-1, 225 Shelton Quarles, TB
6-0, 234 Mark Simeneu, PHL

You are ignorant. How many times must I bring up Zach Thomas. Top 3 MLB, and he is SMALLER THAN VILMA! Get it through your head.
